Wyatt and Storm

We seriously believe this "friend" deserves a swift kick in the pants by a hulking human. He would rather let the dogs his friend serving in Iraq entrusted to his care be killed than to divulge the name of his "friend" so he can be notified his dogs are safe and where they are. What a scumbag, a word we keep hearing on police shows. A definition of scumbag, by the way, is: A person who is deemed to be despicable or contemptible.

Arizona - Despite being entrusted with the dogs' lives by a man off serving his country, the friend chose to turn the 2 dogs over to the Pinal County Animal Care and Control, rather than finding the dogs a guaranteed safe haven.

Boulder Falls Pet Resort wants to see the dogs reunited with their true owner and is currently housing them for free until every effort has been made to make that reunion possible. The rescue volunteers desperately want to contact the deployed soldier to let him know that his dogs are safe, and that they will be held until his return, but they have no way to contact him.

Yellow labs, Wyatt and Storm

The dogs are approximately 2-4 years of age, one male, and one female. One dog is named Wyatt and the other is named Storm.  If anyone has information about the person that owns Wyatt and Storm, they are asked to contact Rhonda Wagner Kuehn at Helping Orphaned Hounds at 406-697-5975..
You can read the rest of the story, "Soldier's dogs surrendered to AZ shelter - public help needed to facilitate a reunion" here.

We hope someone recognizes the dogs so their owner can be notified. What a horrible thing to happen while he is overseas and unable to do anything to rescue his dogs, possibly not even knowing they were dumped at a high kill shelter.  Or if he was notified the dogs were dumped at the shelter, he has no idea that strangers care and have rescued his dogs for him.  We send lots of purrs and tail wags that Wyatt and Storm will be safe and waiting for their owner to return for them.


  1. Seriously? This is unbelievable! Humans are just despicable sometimes!! WE hope the dogs get reunited with their soldier owner.

  2. Will share this on Fb Jan. We've got some names for the kind of "friend" that would stuff like that, and not one of them is fit to publish here Grrr!


  3. That's horrible! We sure hope someone finds their owner and lets them know that they are okay.

  4. This man needs to pick better friends, I think. Thank heavens for strangers.

  5. Awww poor Wyatt and Storm!! what a story - unbelievable!

    I hope they find their owner asap!!

    Take care

  6. Friend isn't a word we would your for that scumbag who sent the soldier's dogs to that shelter. We hope the soldier finds out where they are and thank you to the nice shelter for looking after them.

  7. That is totally horrible! I will ask bunches to read and pass on too!

  8. I'm pretty sure there is a special place in hell for people like that! We sure hope the doggies can be safe and reunited with their owner!

  9. That just makes me sick! That guy is no friend - not of anyone. What a jerk.

  10. He sure won't be the owner's friend once he finds out about this. Stupid and cruel. Sounds like maybe there is more to this story than meets the eye.

  11. We hope the dogs are reunited with their soldier. We have our paws crossed the soldier is on the way home.

  12. We purr and pray that these dogs are reunited with their soldier

  13. I just don't understand this! I bet the person doesn't want to give the name because he/she is telling the soldier that the animals ran away or went to the bridge and doesn't want the person to be mad at him/her. I bet there is a big surprise in store for him/her.

    Purring that the owner is found.

  14. Really? Really??? What a miserable excuse for a human being! We are glad Wyatt and Storm are safe, but we really want them to be reunited with their person. We will purr and pray real hard for that!

    Thank you so much for visiting, and for asking about how Maggie is doing. You are so thoughtful! She is doing really well, actually. :) Her appetite is back to normal, and she's definitely more like herself personality-wise. On Saturday, we started her back on a much-reduced dosage of methimazole for her hyperthyroidism, and so far, so good. We will be watching carefully to see how she does at that dosage to make sure she does not have an adverse reaction. If she does, we may explore the transdermal gel option suggested by some of our friends here on the CB. :)

    I saw this on FB and have reposted it several times now. I hope they find their family soon. That "friend" should be ashamed of himself, this is just awful! Being from military family, i know the friend certainly could have done more to help these beautiful dogs out. Sometimes all it takes is asking another friend of the deployed soldier to care for them until they return.
    If you have Twitter, Facebook, Myspace or any other social networks, please post this story to help reunite them with their human companion

  16. Wow, this is just horrible. Poor woofies!

  17. Oh wow, we dint even see the post above ours. But it sure works well...

  18. I am so glad someone posted on FB. I am all paws and no thumbs when it comes to doing anything on FB. Although I am trying to follow the story of a woofie that escaped in the upper NY state. No one has found her....
    She was on Last Chance Highway on teh Animal Planet. She founded a home, escaped, founded another home and escaped again. *sniff*
    I hope (and this is the woofie's name from LCH, too) that the woofies and their brave soldier find each other at last.


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
